Traveller types - move Buxton to the top of your list! The Derbyshire spa town and gateway to the Peak District was shortlisted in 2013 as one of the top three most attractive places in the British Isles (Cork and Hastings were the other two; move them to the top of your list as well).
Friendly Lime Tree Holiday Park on the edge of Buxton is a very pretty place to camp. In its own valley in a Special Landscaped Area, it is surrounded by farmland and has a wooded limestone gorge and striking old railway viaduct at one edge. It’s also the closest campsite to the town of Buxton – which is about a mile away. (There are maps, brochures and sheets of information on attractions in the area at the Lime Tree reception or ask one of the helpful staff for advice on things to see and do.)
On site, there’s an adventure playground and for the family to laugh in the face of rainy days, an indoor games room with pool table, kids’ corner and TV/DVDs. Other amenities include a launderette with ironing facilities; a well-stocked shop with local produce and an ice block freezing facility; gas cylinder exchange and a microwave for heating babies’ or toddlers’ food.
There’s quite a bit to immerse yourself in at the spa and market town of Buxton, one of the most popular destinations in the Peak District. Like Bath in the south, it was founded as a spa town by Romans and became popular in Georgian times for the supposed health-giving properties of its spa water. Fill up your water bottle at St Anne's Well in front of the Crescent then go on a Buxton tour to see its Georgian architecture and smart landscapes: the award-winning ornamental gardens at the Pavilion, complete with play areas, lake and miniature railway; the Devonshire Dome, the biggest unsupported dome in Britain; and the opulent Buxton Opera House, the highest in the country (as Buxton is England’s highest town, set in the Derbyshire hills at over 1000ft).
For Buxton shopping, nightlife and restaurants, try the Quadrant, George Street and the Old Court House areas; there are several independent shops in Cavendish Arcade. The Peak District as a whole is full of market towns stuffed with local produce and interesting attractions: go to Bakewell for the essential eponymous tart; Leek for Rudyard Lake and the steam train; Ashbourne for a couple of hundred listed buildings, and fellow spa town Matlock Bath. If you don’t mind travelling a bit further, Sheffield and Manchester can both be reached in about an hour to an hour and a quarter.
Also nearby is Castleton with Norman Peveril Castle and four show caves; if going underground is your thing, also check out the caves at Poole’s Tavern just outside Buxton. And there’s caving (and climbing) aplenty at the Peak District National Park, along stacks of outdoor pursuits like hot air ballooning, gliding, water sports and biking the Tissington and Manifold trails. Too much? The Peak has quieter options too, from photography courses to birdwatching to browsing around the area’s many historical houses.

Thank you for you comments. We are a quiet rural site, which is only a 15-20 minute walk to Buxton or a £3.80 taxi. To ensure guests enjoy themselves we promote the fact that we have a no noise policy of 10pm as we have a lot of families visiting us together with the fact that open fires are not permitted. Every guest is given a Buxton guide & map on arrival and shown where the local places are together with an information room with a plethora of information. Should any guest have any questions they are more than welcome to ask any member of staff.
